2015 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the Nissan Pathfinder, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Traverse is a little wider than the Nissan Pathfinder, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Traverse, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Pathfinder, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
